Abreu Faro Amphitheater, Interdisciplinary Building, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Wednesday, September 13th, 18:00h

Recent de Broglie wave interference experiments with atoms have achieved wavepacket separations as large as 54 cm over time intervals of 2 sec. These experiments, and their impact on gravitational and quantum physics, will be discussed.

Organized by:
- Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information, Instituto Superior Técnico
- Lisbon Training Workshop on Quantum Technologies in Space

Supported by:
Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (PD/00204/2012 and UID/EEA/50008/2013)
and COST Action "Quantum Technologies in Space (QTSpace, CA15220)

Maratona Tecnológica Sunset Hackathon

on 01-09-2017

... The first Sunset Hackathon arrives to Portugal!
On the coming September, days 1, 2 and 3, Hardware City will be organizing a 72h technological marathon focused on the creation of innovative solutions, gathering talents and companies in a relaxed summer context.
The main goal of the event is to promote the direct contact between companies in the field and national talents, from design to electronics, to find new ideas and solutions for the market necessities in an informal and relaxed work environment.
If you are interested in the development of new technologies or product design, if you like hardware or software, if you are a hacker or a maker, come create new solution with a foot on the sand, at the Cais Criativo da Costa Nova, in Ílhavo!
Those interested should register individually, and of course, invite their friends, to tackle the challenges proposed by companies from various technological fields in order to solve real problems and develop Creative Concept Competitions!
